Upcoming Events in Livermore Valley Wine Country!

winebottleWho said that the holiday season meant stress and chaos? Here in Livermore Valley, the holiday season also means plenty of events, activities and discount specials at our local vineyards and wineries. While you can fight the crowds at the grocery store this weekend and the department stores on Black Friday, as your Livermore Valley real estate agent, I suggest enjoying some wine instead.

Take a moment to savor the moment, support local business and socialize with Livermore Valley neighbors. Here are a few events to mark in your calendar in the next couple of weeks:

  • Do you know what types of wines should be served with Thanksgiving dinner? Visit the new tasting room at Cuda Ridge Wines this Saturday or Sunday, Nov. 23 or 24, for Salute to Harvest! You’ll get to pair wines with “Thanksgiving on a Crostini” by Smokey Jim. This will include turkey, stuffing and gravy with homemade cranberry sauce on the side. Wine tastings include merlot, cabernet franc, sab sauv, malbec or petit verdot. Enjoy live music while you sip and sample. Tasting flights cost $10.
  • If you don’t have time to cook Thanksgiving dinner, but would still like to enjoy it, order a take-home dinner from Wente Vineyards! There meal generously feeds six and features traditional holiday dishes with simple finishing instructions to follow at home. You can pick up at the Event Center at Wente Vineyard the day before Thanksgiving, but you must reserve ahead of time! The meal costs $249.
  • What better way to celebrate Black Friday than with wine? Steer clear of the stores and instead head to Murrieta’s Well in Livermore, CA! From 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday through Sunday, you can enjoy their special Holiday Preview Weekend. Purchase gift baskets and enjoy seasonal cheer while indulging in handcrafted blends.

There are also open houses and/or sales happening the day after Thanksgiving at Thomas Coyne Winery, McGrail Vineyards and Winery, and Las Positas Vineyards.

The next big Livermore Valley Wine Country event, which encompasses all participating wineries, is Holidays in the Vineyards Dec. 7 and 8. Mark your calendar for this wonderful event, which is right around the corner!

On these two days, you’re encouraged to bring unwrapped toys or monetary donations to your favorite winery. All donations will be given to the Pleasanton-Livermore Fire Association’s Toys for Tots program after the event. On these two days, you can enjoy arts and craft vendors, special wines, festive activities, Santa visits, carolers and so much more. Full details are available here.
